NaviSite Partners with EdgeCast Networks to Deliver Next-Generation CDN offerings for New Content Delivery System

New World Class, Cost-effective Content Delivery Services Offer More Flexibility, Faster User Experience, and Superior Delivery of Digital Content
Andover, MA(2/4/2009) - NaviSite, Inc., a leading provider of Enterprise Hosting, and Application and Content Delivery Services, today announced its partnership with EdgeCast, a leading provider of global content delivery services, to develop a new content delivery portfolio using EdgeCast?s CDN platform. NaviSite?s new content delivery portfolio includes a mix of CDN-based services such as caching, electronic file delivery, streaming of rich media, web portal and API tools, auto provisioning, advanced real-time reporting, and continuous support.

NaviSite evaluated many CDN providers, finally choosing EdgeCast because of the company?s experience and expertise in enabling organizations to quickly and reliably deliver digital content including video, music, games, and live streaming to end users across the globe. EdgeCast?s CDN platform uses the latest technologies such as global load balancing, advanced reporting, and a global network of 14 points of presence (POPs), enabling faster and more efficient routing, easy provisioning, enhanced reporting and analytics, and a flexible pricing model. With POPs located close to NaviSite data centers, content delivery to NaviSite customers is faster, less expensive, and higher quality than traditional methods where content is served from a single location. EdgeCast?s global load balancing technology automatically routes customers to the fastest POP, ensuring the highest possible levels of availability.

?In today?s digital world, businesses need to deliver all kinds of content to users spread around the world: a challenging task. Organizations today need to move past traditional content delivery networks and service providers that cannot handle the load, the latest formats, or the distances, or offer efficient management and reporting tools,? said Denis Martin, CTO of NaviSite. ?Our new set of CDN offerings based on EdgeCast platform gives our customers an up-to-date, cost-effective, speedy solution, freeing them from their content delivery worries.?

All of NaviSite?s current hosting services and data centers are supported by the new content delivery offerings. Customers can be up and running within a few hours of purchasing the service, and will have the option of adding on new, optional features instantly.

?For more than a decade, NaviSite has led the industry in providing organizations, large and small, with superior hosting and application delivery solutions,? said James Segil, cofounder and president of EdgeCast Networks. ?By adding the EdgeCast content delivery network to their portfolio of offerings, NaviSite is again showing its customers that it is serious about fast, reliable content delivery whether it?s around the corner or around the world. We?re very excited that NaviSite chose our technology and our network to power this new suite of offerings.?

EdgeCast has built a global content delivery network designed for today?s rich media Internet. Engineered with high-performance speed and a highly scalable, globally load balanced architecture that supports massive audiences and flash crowds, the EdgeCast network outperforms rivals by significant margins. Customers experience dramatic performance improvements and substantial cost savings when switching from competitors.
